"Dressing For A Summer Wedding: For The Preppy Guest" is the third of a three post summer wedding series on www.igeeokafor.com.

In collaboration with Mr Baldwin Style Grooms to highlight different ways in which one can adapt different forms of menswear into various wedding aesthetics, here are 3 few tips for the Preppy Wedding Guest. 

1. A season appropriate blazer paired with chinos is a great option for the preppy wedding guest.  Since khaki chinos are a staple for the preppy guy, you can't go to wrong with a pair of crisp chinos for the bottom half of your wedding guest look.  For weddings in the fall or winter opt for a darker color chino pant in lieu of khaki.

2. Tassel Loafers - A bit more dressy and sophisticated than the classic penny loafer, the tassel loafer is the perfect shoe for the preppy wedding guest. Along with providing comfort for long hours of dancing, this shoe is a nice option as it is versatile enough to be worn for the wedding and any other activities surrounding the wedding. Let this be the one shoe you pack for the weekend.

3. Contrast Collar Dress Shirt - More interesting than a solid blue button down shirt, the blue dress shirt with white contrast collar is another ode to the preppy guy. The sign of a guy that knows style and sophistication, this shirt is typically more formal than a solid color dress business shirt and perfect for a wedding at a University Club  or Yacht Club.
